Border spreading systems | Border spreading devices

Active protection for the environment

Economical, and in particular, extremely ecologically sensitive mineral fertilising requires responsible minded actions. According to new environmental directives, environmentally harmless fertilisation on the field edge is not possible without modern border spreading systems.

  1. Working width 2) Half working width

Side spreading (yield-oriented setting) 
The adjacent field is an area which is used agriculturally. In this instance, the small amount of fertiliser being thrown beyond the field’s border can be tolerated. The full target rate is applied up to the field boundary.

  1. Working width 2) Half working width

Border spreading (environmentally oriented setting)
If the field is next to a road or a cycle path, no fertiliser may be thrown beyond the field boundary. In this case, the throwing distance is adjusted in combination with the shutter slide. 

  1. Working width 2) Half working width

Water course spreading (environmentally oriented setting) 
If there is a body of water directly at the edge of the field, a defined distance to the water must be maintained when fertilising according to the fertiliser regulations. For this purpose, the throwing distance is further reduced in combination with the shutter slide.

Border spreading with the border spread deflector 
If the first tramline is situated at the field’s edge, border spreading (environmentally-orientated adjustment) is then achieved by utilising the half-side shut-off of the spread fan. No fertiliser is thrown beyond the field boundary and optimum fertilisation is maintained inside the field.

Border spreading devices

All of the requirements of the current fertiliser regulations can be perfectly met with AMAZONE border spreading devices.

Tele-Set disc
You can change over from normal spreading to side, boundary or water course spreading by means of a tool-less disc change.

Border spread deflector, left-hand
The one-sided, manually folded border spread deflector is a low-cost solution for carrying out boundary spreading on the left-hand side in the direction of travel.

Border spread deflector, bilateral
The bilateral border spread deflector can be used to spread to the left, the right or on both sides and ensures that the tractor wheel track is left almost fertiliser free. It is adjustable for different sorts of fertiliser and is ideal for specialist crops and makes many types of operation possible. Mounting and demounting is carried out quickly and easily without tools.

Convenient boundary spreading - without stopping or leaving the tractor cab

Perfect boundary and side spreading
The Limiter is a modern boundary spreading system that is used if the first tramline is half the working width of the fertiliser spreader in from the edge of the field. It is used for side, boundary and water course spreading.

The decisive advantage with the Limiter is that there is no need to stop, interrupt the spreading operation or leave the tractor cab.

The EasySet 2 in-cab terminal can be used to reduce the spread rate for boundary and water course spreading.

The Limiter can be moved around a fixed frame to give a generously dimensioned swivel range. This sets the Limiter to the required position for side, boundary or water course spreading, depending on the type of fertiliser. Exact details of this can be found in the setting chart and on a sticker on the machine. If the Limiter is not being used, it is conveniently swivelled up via a hydraulic cylinder.
